Wonder Drug Avandia in Question

CBS, the Associated Press and other news sources reported today that Avandia the diabetes, "wonder drug", may not be so wonderful after all.

Although Glaxo Smith Kline, the developers opf Avandia, say the benefits outweigh the risk, the New England Journal of Medicine reports that people taking Avandia to help lower their blood sugars may face a 43% higher chance of heart problems, and a 64% higher chance of cardiovascular problems while taking the drug.

It is reported that last year the Avandia developer changed the medicine's label to reflect this higher risk. They are recommending that patients who take Avandia not stop taking the drug on their own because of possible uncontrolled rises in blood sugar. Such patients should confer with their doctors.

We agree with the advice that patients not cease taking Avandia. However, people have to begin to put pressure on their doctors to recommend natural treatments for diabetes and other chronic conditions. We simply are getting tired of revelation after revelation about these chemically manufactured "cures".
